UPDATE: Wanted suspect arrested after search in northern San Luis Obispo County

Posted at 4:47 PM, Dec 07, 2018


UPDATE (10:20 p.m.)- Jordan Nogo has had several run-ins with the law, making the sheriff’s office “most wanted” list in 2016 for burglary, conspiracy, felony grand theft from an elder and resisting a peace officer.

With helicopters circling and K-9 units on scene, Paso Robles resident Kenny Cottrell says he and others were stuck for about 45 minutes while officials tried to diffuse the situation. He says his family lives nearby but never received a reverse 911 notification from the sheriff’s office.

“We weren’t too sure exactly what was going on,  we could hear the police department with the loud phone talking to the gentleman in the car telling him to get out and release himself but that’s all we knew,” Cotrell said.

UPDATE (4:40 p.m.) – The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office reports that Jordan Nogo, the suspect authorities were looking for following a report of shots fired in Paso Robles, has been taken into custody.

Nogo was arrested after a traffic stop on Geneseo Road near Union Road in rural Paso Robles. That came after deputies received a report that he’d been spotted in the area of Ground Squirrel Hollow Road.

Sheriff’s officials say Nogo initially refused to get out of his car. Geneseo and Union Roads were blocked off, school buses were rerouted, and a reverse 911 call was sent to residents in the area advising them of the situation.

At about 3:50 p.m., sheriff’s officials say Nogo exited the vehicle and was taken into custody. He was arrested on suspicion of parole and weapons violations.

Deputies had been searching for Nogo since Friday morning when it was reported that he had fired a shot inside his mobile home which struck a neighboring home.


(12: 55 p.m.) – Authorities searched areas of Paso Robles and Templeton Friday for a man suspected in a shooting.

The incident began shortly before 10 a.m. after a report of shots fired.

It happened at the Los Robles Mobile Home Estates on Theatre Drive in Paso Robles.

According to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office, Jordan Nogo, 28, of Paso Robles fired off a round inside his mobile home. The bullet reportedly went through the wall of his home and into his neighbor’s home.

No injuries were reported.

Sheriff’s officials say when deputies arrived at the scene, Nogo tried to hide a handgun in his clothing before taking off in a black VW Passat with a license plate of 6CKH797. They say he is armed and possibly suicidal.

Deputies reportedly searched the east side of rural Paso Robles and the west side of Templeton but have not been able to locate Nogo, who is wanted for parole violations, officials say.

Anyone with information on where Nogo may be is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (805) 781-4550. Anonymous tips can be made through Crime Stoppers at (805)549-STOP (7867) or online here.
